Intensive Outpatient Program Q & A

What is an intensive outpatient program?

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) enable patients with substance abuse disorders to live at home and carry on with their day-to-day lives rather than staying on-site in a residential setting while participating in a very comprehensive treatment program.

Victory Recovery Partners' intensive outpatient programs also support patients who are transitioning from an inpatient program, helping them adjust to life back in their communities and with their families. An intensive outpatient program provides vital assistance so you can create your support mechanisms and coping strategies, as well as helping with relapse management.

Why would an intensive outpatient program be a good choice for me?

For many patients, residential care can be challenging. While it offers significant advantages, such as separating you from sources of your substance of choice, many people have commitments to their work and home lives that they can't give up. Inpatient programs can also be difficult to access and very expensive.

Intensive outpatient programs offer the intensive treatment you need, but at the same time allow you to continue with your everyday life. However, it's important that you have a secure environment in which to live when taking part in an intensive outpatient program.

What does an intensive outpatient program involve?

Before starting your intensive outpatient program, you undergo a comprehensive medical exam and evaluation, plus lab work and toxicology tests.

All patients at Victory Recovery Partners see a board-certified physician or a physician assistant with extensive expertise in addiction medicine. They carry out a psycho-social assessment and identify the specific problems you're facing.

Your provider discusses with you the details of the treatment program, including the medications you'll be taking, how often you need to visit Victory Recovery Partners, and how to get the most from your intensive outpatient program.

Every patient is an individual, so the exact details of your treatment are unique to you. However, you're likely to be attending both group and individual therapy sessions. You could benefit from medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and support groups like Narcotics Anonymous can also play a significant role.

How much support does an intensive outpatient program offer?

At Victory Recovery Partners, intensive outpatient programs require an average of three to four visits every week for around three hours each time. SAMHSA (the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) recommends intensive outpatient programs involve a minimum of nine hours of participation each week.

An intensive outpatient program is a more significant commitment than a standard outpatient program but offers you the support and assistance you need to manage your addiction successfully.
